Red Dog & Bates: An Adventure Documentary

Red Dog & Bates
An Adventure Documentary

In 1958, two young men realized they were settling into lives they hadn't expected to be in. When Bill "Red Dog" Tynan decided he'd take a walk from Los Angeles to Mexico City to figure out what could be next, Bill Bates asked to come along. With only a few dollars, a few belongings and Tynan's camera, they headed off, on foot, not stopping until 2300 miles and 12 pairs of shoes later. What they found along the way was the kindness of the Mexican people, the beauty of the land and a life-changing experience.
